    The Fitness Walkers meet every Thursday morning (rain or shine!) at 9:30 a.m. at Bellevue. Every week we explore different areas around the city of Zürich: sometimes we enjoy walking along the lake or along one of the rivers that wind through our beautiful city; sometimes we explore one of the many neighborhoods.

    No matter where we go, we always enjoy walking and talking with each other! After the walk we'll often grab a coffee or lunch somewhere nearby.

    Please feel free to contact Patti if you want to join us!

    A thrilling Urban Adventure is what Foxtrail will offer us!

    It is a mix between a treasure hunt and an outdoor escape game. We will solve tricky riddles, break secret codes and discover the city in a playful way. It is a group adventure that will afford us a great chance for cooperation and fun!

    We will participate in teams of 6 people, with the choices being (most likely) the Spartakus, Aristoteles and/or Odysseus fox trails. We will get input beforehand on which trail you would like to pursue. We are hoping to have at least 2 groups for this excursion....so 10-14 people would be ideal. If our registrants exceed that amount, we can do 3 separate trails. It would be great if those interested have a look on the website https://www.foxtrail.ch/en/home to consider which trails interest them most.

    Cost: Approximately 32 CHF, to be paid the day of the event . Plus lunch at own cost if desired.
